OGDEN — Police say a 26-year-old man who evaded officers during a high-speed chase near the Utah-Idaho border was arrested in South Ogden on Monday.

South Ogden officer Marci Edwards said officers arrested Brodey Brown late Monday after receiving an anonymous tip.

Earlier that day, police say Brown fled from Tremonton Police when he was pulled over for a traffic violation.

"He turned around to stop the vehicle," said Tremonton Police Chief Jim Nance. "(He) stopped, made contact with the driver, took his identification and the officer went back to his vehicle. (Then) the driver of the vehicle he had stopped took off."

Officers say they followed Brown north on Interstate 15 but pulled off as they approached Idaho because there were no officers standing by in that state to continue the chase.

The Standard-Examiner reports (http://bit.ly/1h5x95Q) an outstanding warrant for Brown's arrest had been issued earlier in October related to drugs and weapons charges.

Tremonton Police Chief Dave Nance says officials will pursue additional charges for the chase.
